Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I second all you said here GH, I use anti seize on the spark plug and then I use Blue Loctite on the mounting bolts for engine to frame and the intake bolts, nothing else really seems to need it in my experience.....

For a replacement ''usually just the motor mount bolts'' But I am a big six foot guy. Somebody will post that is much shorter and weighs a 100 pounds with a completely different story lol. I typically use ''non stainless'' grade 5 bolts or the black grade 8 cap bolts with blue Loctite. Note loctite is not necessary on every fastener. My bike will not be in the lake or an ocean.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
